What is a good yet inexpensive Windows Phone that can be used for testing?

I'm an Android user (Nexus 5), and I have an old iPhone 4 that I use for testing iOS stuff.

I'm now using X.Forms and would like to test against a WP device as well. What's a good, yet inexpensive WP device?

    I currently own many Windows Phone devices. I use the Nokia 520 to test for small form factor issues, and a Nokia 625 for larger screen testing. Both phone are cheap and very good devices

    I ended up grabbing a Nokia Lumia 520 for $100 new at Walmart. Does the trick! Now I just need to update my OSS project to support WP.

    I have the 520 lumina too, decent device. You can update it to later versions by installing a windows preview (or something like that) app from the windows store. They have a guide on wpcentral on doing this, for more step by step info.

    Hope this helps
